1792....

There are so many thing to be excited about! First of all is that my laptop is kind of back in order after a big overhaul.

Next is the world wide web of blogs and websites, where you can read about people and gardens and food, you can help feed the poor in Africa, Haiti and Australia, you can learn about preserving walled kitchen gardens in England, weaving fences in the Adelaide Hills and growing ginseng and salmon in northern Tasmania.  And, along the way, you can collect all the links and share them on facebook or google+. Learning, connecting, giving and sharing have never been so easy.

I felt totally naked and isolated while my laptop was out of order. Living at the bottom of the world is fabulous and I love all the people I meet and things I do but the internet puts the whole world at my fingertips....

..... even  the world in 1792....

I have found a coin in my garden.... dated 1792.... and my neighbour Jilli has been researching who could have dropped it there..... and we have a possible answer.... which I am going to write a story about.....

Wow, that is a nice find. There was an interesting coin exhibition at TMAG last time I visited, might have similar examples to compare?
